Dramatic Skies over Vicenza

The advantage of staying longer time at a particular place is that you can wait. Wait for the right point of time. Wait for the day when the light is as it only is once a year. In Vicenza, I was that lucky two or three times, and that’s when the pictures in this post were taken.

For the last photo I took my camera and my bike and went up Monte Berico, the mountain overlooking Vicenza. A storm front was moving in, and I was hoping for same dramatic scenes. Arriving at Monte Berico, I was disappointed initially. I just looked all pretty grey. But after waiting a bit, the sun managed to break through in the west, while¬†hard rain was already drenching the area between Vicenza and the southern edge of the Alps. In no time, the rain also arrived at Monte Berico and I had to mount my bike to make it back home in a hurry, now all down-hill, though. Yes, I got wet, but what don’t I do for a good shot… ;-).
